After leading the Rams with 21 points against region foe Lovejoy, Newton guard Jalen Glover has been named the Newton Athlete of the Week.

Glover was instrumental in helping the Rams to their 14th victory of the season, knocking down five 3-pointers in the win to move Newton to 5-2 in region play.

Glover's performance helped Newton avenge a 56-48 road loss to the Wildcats in the Rams' season-opening road region contest.

Glover opened up the contest against Lovejoy with back-to-back shots from beyond the arc, as Newton cruised to a 50-34 win.

Glover also finished with 10 points against Druid Hills during the Ram's Jan. 14 win over the Red Devils.

Newton returns to action tonight on the road at Alcovy in a Region 2-AAAAAA rivalry contest. Game time is set for 8:30 p.m.

The Rams will travel to Cedar Shoals on Saturday before returning home on Jan. 28 to take on Luella. Newton has remaining region contests against Rockdale County, Morrow and Druid Hills.
